May 14, 2012 - Supporting collision avoidance and vehicle detection, R-GAGE Series of radar-based sensors have capability to detect large objects in outdoor environments. Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar, unaffected by rain, snow, wind, fog, light, humidity, or temperature, promotes reliable detection and can also detects stationary objects that cannot be detected by Doppler radar. Distance capabilities minimize dead zones, and dual-zone signaling prevents damaging collisions.

R-GAGE Series from Banner Engineering supports collision avoidance and vehicle detection

An updated series of radar-based sensors with enhanced capability for detecting large objects in challenging outdoor situations has been introduced by Banner Engineering (www.bannerengineering.com). The R-GAGE sensors support collision avoidance and vehicle management applications in container ports, traffic and parking systems, manufacturing, mining, materials handling and railroads.

With expanded distance capabilities, the new sensors can detect objects both farther away from the sensor and closer to it (reducing "dead" zones). The Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar provides reliable detection in nearly any weather condition; it is not affected by rain, snow, wind, fog, light, humidity or temperature. It also detects stationary objects that cannot be detected by Doppler radar.

The sensors provide dual-zone signaling to prevent damaging collisions between harbor cranes. They can also increase efficiency of container movement by providing accurate position information to the crane operator.

Models are available for long range (up to 40 m), wide angle and narrow beam applications. All feature easy DIP-switch configuration with no PC required.

Banner Engineering is a leading manufacturer of vision, photoelectric and ultrasonic sensors, fiber optic assemblies, machine guarding systems, measurement and inspection systems and wireless network products. The company provides local application support worldwide.
